The jewelry firm Maison Poiray--established in Paris’ emblematic Place Vendôme in 1975--has earned a reputation as a different, bold, elegant and refined brand. Its style brings a modern twist to traditional jewelry and offers a range of pieces for women looking for an innovative, urban and carefree pieces with clean lines.
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the debut of Maison Poiray, a jeweler that has become one of France’s most prestigious brands thanks to its splendorous style and savoir-faire. The label owes its success to designs that depict opulent and robust shapes, evident in its famous hearts, scrolls, and filigrees—as well as the Art Deco style of its different collections. More on fashion and jewelry trends.
One of the distinguishing features of Maison Poiray is the use of the cabochon cut, a hallmark of the prestigious brand. Also, Poiray delivers its solid and bold forms in exquisite and beautiful pink, white and yellow gold, soft curves and delicate angles.
The Indrani collection from Maison Poiray elucidates its renowned gracefulness. It is a series of rings embedded in hinged frames that evoke a conceptual approach to modernity. The rings consist of two parts that allow total mobility, and the setting produces a soft, pleasant sound when the user moves her hands. This new collection was designed with semiprecious cabochon stones or smaller stones with rounded shapes.
The gems of the four smaller rings—a 3.6ct. Quartz fume, 3.8ct. Rose quartz, 4ct Amethyst, and 4.4ct. Blue topaz—are carved with rounded facets. The other three rings in the collection—larger in size—feature stones carved as oval-shaped cabochons with 15.4ct. Amethyst and 15.3ct. Chalcedony.
The prices of these splendid and original rings from the Maison Poiray Indrani Collection range from $2,100 to over $4,900, depending on the model. ■
